Ah, yes. I completely misread the test.

Well, I’ve discovered that if I keep the mouse moving over the Emacs
frame while the tests are running then none of them fail, so I think
it’s something to do with ns_select jamming everything up for the
duration of its timeout.

I could probably get round that by getting the thread to fire off an
NS app defined event when it dies. That would break ns_select out of
its event loop, presumably letting the dying thread actually die...

Amazingly that seems to have worked! Updated patch attached.
